Running Shirts to Keep You Cool: Under Armour Tactical Charged Cotton T-Shirt

I've heard conflicting things about synthetics and their ability to keep me cool. What should I wear while running in this brutal heat?

Under Armour has mastered the tech to turn cotton into an ultra-soft, sweat-banishing fabric. Because of the shirt’s simple design, it will easily fit in at a barbeque with the family. And because it uses the company’s Charged Cotton formula, it will keep you a lot more comfortable during a workout in the heat. This model is dubbed “tactical” because it’s geared toward service people, but even if you’re not in the military, the range of muted colors make it a good choice for those of you tired of sportswear's neon color palette. ($25)
